So, The BCPF have gotten sucked into watching “continuing coverage” of the progress and destruction of Hurricane Florence. The BCPF gets weirded out by potential problems that nature can bring. So, hearing that two women and an infant have died because of, or at least relative to, the storm is hard to hear.
At first, I thought, well, dummies, they told you to leave! But, the more I thought about it, I realized that I have no clue what their circumstances were, I don’t know if they couldn’t leave, had mobility problems, etc. And, it’s really not my business to tell or ask why people decide to stay put. I had to catch myself from just being a judgemental arse. I am like that sometimes and I know plenty of others who are, too.
I know we stocked up on some food but we didn’t get stupid about it. We just got what we thought we may need. I don’t know how hard we’ll be hit but it could just be a lot of rain, could be heavy winds that knock over trees and knock out power lines, it could be nothing. Never hurts to be prepared, but no need to panic. So, here I am, Dear Reader, telling you all to be safe and just be prepared.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
